EDIT. I'm thinking, should I make print of this work? To make it available to them who like it? : ) 20x30 cm glossy photopaper was in my mind. Please let me know your opinion! : )))
Hah, you didn't expect this kind of work from me, huh? : D I can suprise sometimes x)
I was so obsessed with this work, really. I stayed late at nights to finish this as working piece. And now I honestly can say that I DO like how this turned out! : )) I have listened this series soundtracks over and over again while doing. I had watched too many times the first season and can't wait to see the second one once again! I'm totally excited! :'D
Something about this fanart: First of all, this is NOT shipping, NO Sherlock x John, nono. Good if you get my point, thank you. I have drawn already few Sherlocks and I haven't forgotten absolutely adorable John! So this is his special art from me ^^ This is totally different working style for me, as you can see. There is quite a lot of layers when I usually work with one or two. The colors are somehow Halloweenish? Is that a word? :'D Well, lot of yellow and of course purple. I like using bright colors but most of my works have been more or less realistic. I loved to do an excpection<3 You can see my usual style only in characters' faces and rest of it is cartoonish. Making this texture (on background and clothes) was truly fun. They are watercolor brushes which I haven't used before and I don't know why. These brushes are awesome, I'll use them in the future as well<3 Buildings, I am not so good at those but silhuettes are nice to draw. I had of course difficulties with this, especially with that background. I had maybe five different versions of it and finally found this ^^ Oh, I miss London<3
Gah, too many words, I guess? ;D
Well, I really do DO hope you guys will like this and appreciate my effort!~
And if you do, will you leave a comment? :')
Would you like to see more this style from me in the future? Why or why not?
